Daddy again flew off for one of his many business trips yesterday. He actually asked Kieran to remind me like a million times not to forget to send him for swimming class. Yeah remember? I’m the slack mommy who can forget!
We went to KLCC for lunch and bought some groceries as I intend to cook spaghetti for dinner. No no..who am I kidding? Go all the way to KLCC for lunch and groceries? No lar..the real reason was that my favourite shoe store (Pedder) was on sale..but unfortunately or should I say fortunately I didn’t find anything that suits me!
Mission accomplished, yes I DID send him to swimming class, thank God it was not raining. I quickly sorted out the groceries and got the maid to do some preparation for dinner. Went back to pick Kieran up. Usually daddy does this but since it’s me, he has to shower in the ladies!! He was not comfortable of course! But no choice la!
Dinner was great…(cheh..self praise), I made mushroom soup too but it was not that good…bleh..Kieran gobbled down dinner as he gets really hungry after swimming. Then I asked him to do some revision but he was cooking up excuses that he can’t find the book la, toothache la…got me really mad! Then as I was watching tv, he suddenly came down to tell me his mouth was bleeding but I didn’t even turn around to look at him! I was so mad and thought he was making a mountain out of a mole hill to avoid studying. Then I asked him to pack his bag then since he didn’t want to do revision. He was packing really slowly (as usual) and then suddenly he started crying as in sobbing!
Me- What’s wrong with you???
K-(in between sobs) i…i…miss….dad…dy….i…miss….him….
Me-he was away for 5 whole days last week and you didn’t cry or said anything…why suddenly now you miss him?
My heart dropped…must be the part that I didn’t bother to check his bleeding mouth! But being me, I just told to hurry up & pack up & go to sleep!
Then during the advertisement intermission, I went up quickly to check on him and he was still sniffling…
Me-It’s ok darling, don’t cry ok…mummy’s here..(ya right)
K-(started sobbing again)…but…but…I miss…dad….deee….
Me-come come mummy hug hug…sayang sayang…
Me-ok stop! Go to sleep!
So can you see why my kids don’t even ask for me when I’m not around?????
